Description

Broomehill Historical Society was officially declared in 1997 and the following year a stone building was erected on the corner of Great Southern Highway and Journal Street – which is now our Museum . The building was officially opened on 20 April 1898 and used as the Agricultural Hall where meetings and dances were held. A room at the rear was added later for Road Board members to meet. At one stage the building housed the Mechanics’ Institute. In 1923 the building was purchased by the Presbyterian Church, the porch was added and regular services were held until the early 1940’s. The brick work was rendered after 1946. The Broomehill Shire Council purchased the building in the late 1960’s and in 1979 it was officially opened as a museum, containing many items of historical interest for Broomehill.

The museum is open by appointment, at long weekends and special events. Volunteers contact numbers are displayed on the front door. To help us maintain our collection, we ask for an entry donation and Broomehill and Holland Track souvenirs are available for sale.

In 1893 Mr R. John Holland (b 1855 – d 1936) cut a direct cart track from Broomehill to the Goldfields which was and is still known as the Holland track.

Description

The Northampton Historical Society was formed in 1969 and meets in Chiverton House (pictured above) which was built c 1865-85 and sits in the main street in the town. This building is owned by the Shire but given exclusively to the Historical Society, which runs it as a museum. The area saw the very first mining activity in the state – originally for tin - so the museum highlights this activity.

The museum has a collection of documents, old School books diaries and letters and a large collection of photographs from past residents. The backyard of the house has a collection of old farm machinery.

The Society has 54 members and volunteers, and meets on the 3rd Friday of the month at 4pm. Volunteers open the museum from 10 – 12 & 2 – 4 Sat/Sun/Mon/Wed/Friday. Admission $3 Adults, 50c Students. Volunteers also deal with requests for information. The Society sells an informational  pamphlet Looking Back  by Captain Mitchell

The district contains the Gwalia mine site – settled c1863 which now has interpretive signs, as does the Lynton Convict Hiring Depot 1853-57 on the Port Gregory/ Kalbarri road
